You have a great idea, assessed the market landscape, assembled a core team and completed your formation paperwork. You know you’re on to something great and the feedback you’re receiving confirms this. To accelerate growth you need capital – what are your financing options and how do you determine which option is best for you and your company?

Please join Sheppard Mullin for our Third Thursday Emerging Company Webinar Series educating entrepreneurs and emerging companies on the key legal issues they face during the growth of their companies. These complimentary 1-hour webinars are held through Zoom. They will have both an audio and PowerPoint component.

  • Assess the pros and cons of each financing option: including: convertible notes, venture debt, SAFEs and preferred stock
  • Become familiar with the key elements of a term sheet in general
  • Discuss the planning you must do prior to meeting with investors

Whether you are a new or serial entrepreneur, please join us for an informative session to help formulate your strategy for financing your latest venture.
